Cognitive Computing for Utilities

Lecture | January 22 | 12-1 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, 310, Banatao Auditorium

 Christopher Couper, Distinguished Engineer, IBM

 CITRIS and the Banatao Institute

This talk focuses on a cognitive computing approach to handle common problems within utilities, concentrating on utility operations and exploring the concept of using cognitive models and the underlying technologies that support it. I will discuss such topics as big data, analytics, sensing and the Internet of Things (IoT), along with the cognitive modeling schema. In addition, I will present examples of business problems that could utilize cognitive computing capabilities, along with issues and challenges to this type of approach.
